Christian Living Sereies Vol. 3: Christian Virtues
The four volumes of the Christian Living Series are the fruit of a catechism class that the late bishop Youanis used to teach to university students who came to Cairo from other states to study. The Chapters of these volumes have been a hand book for many Christians who are pursuing their spiritual path and a source of direction to many over the last fifty years, now we present it to you in the English language.
This volume discusses some of the Christian Virtues that should accompany a Christian throughout their spiritual path. Chapters include: Purity, Prayer, Fasting, and Almsgiving.
